Forum: etree Subject: Re: The Worst of the Grateful Dead

I truly believe--and I say this as a DeadHead who loves this band more than any that ever did or will exist--who revelled in going to shows and continues to listen to them ALL the time--that there are numerous of shows...if one is TRULY objective about it, that flat out stink, especially in those last horrible days of 1995.

Jerry's vocals are like frog croaks. Even with the prompter he couldnt get the words right...The band is disjointed and often sounds like everyone is playing something different at the same time, and the vibe is weak.

I would echo this for certain shows in 1985 before jerry slipped into his coma (and really, doesn't that make sense?)...also, in 1986...I don't have time for specific examples right now....but choose some shows from those years I mentioned and listen objectively...then tell me they didn't play SOME horrible shows.
